NOMAD TALES #4: MAEVE LEWTAS

TEMPLATE NT-2

I met Maeve at the CERN Toddler Group and she seemed to me like one of the most happiest and peaceful moms I’ve met over there. She was easy to talk to, very friendly and to me she was just super stylish and calm. When at a dinner party she told me all about her adventures abroad I knew I had to bring her to the blog! Her movings and travels were so interesting! Take a look 🙂 Keep reading…

WHAT TO BUY FIRST FOR MY EMPTY NEW RENTAL? + FREE PRINTABLE

what to buy first

As I told you here, we don’t own any furniture or appliances. Thus, because we are moving to an empty rental for the first time in our adult lives, we need to buy some stuff.
So… what should we buy first for our empty new rental? What things do we absolutely need and what others can wait? Do we really need a couch in the first week of moving in? Maybe not… Do we really need a mattress and bed linen? Yeah… probably we do.
The best way to avoid being overwhelmed with this new adventure is being prepared, so I decided to make a list of things that we need and a list of things that will come with time. For that I even made a PRIORITIES SHOPPING LIST! Keep reading…

THE FIRST THING TO DO AFTER MOVING TO A NEW RENTAL+ FREE PRINTABLE INVENTORY

T&T_first thing

Since the time we became independent grownups paying our own bills, we’ve lived already in 7 different apartments! Some were in better condition than others but all of them were completely furnished and equipped. In most of the houses we occupied we had the luck of having nice and trustworthy landlords with whom we could talk and ask for some improvements or freedom to do some small bits of decoration.

Antonio is LucĂ­a’s husband. You can read the story of how we met here. It is really amazing how we connected so easily and fast! It looks like we’ve been friends all our lives! I’ll miss them deeply when I leave.
I interviewed Antonio separately from LucĂ­a because although they’ve been together for so many years, they have different backgrounds and stories from when they were just kids. Keep reading…

NOMAD TALES #2: LUCÍA MARICALVA

NT_Lucia Maricalva

I met LucĂ­a when I was still living in France and used to go to this Toddler Group at CERN. At the time I was responsible for getting all newcomers names and info, so I had to start chatting with them as soon as they arrived. Immediately we connected and started to talk a lot. It was friendship at first sight! Then we started to have lunch together with both of our husbands and kids. And soon we were already discovering Switzerland and France with them. It was then when I began to really enjoy my stay at Switzer-France. And now I don’t want to leave again… Keep reading…

ALL ABOUT MY MOVING SYSTEM + FREE PRINTABLE + INFOGRAPHIC

moving system

Over the years I’ve been getting better and better at moving, organizing the move and packing all our stuff. I am a bit of a control freak so when it comes to organizing, putting things in place, packing our bags and arranging everything to move, I am the person behind it all.

Planning a move is no easy task, so over time I’ve developed kind of a system in 7 steps that helps me to stay zen while packing and moving: Keep reading…
